Stonehill Community Garden - July News

Goodbye to Rachel - This month we say goodbye to Rachel, our Project Coordinator for the last two years.  Rachel says: "I've had a wonderful time over the last two years helping the garden develop and meeting all the visitors.  The garden has come on such a long way and I am grateful to all those who have supported the project.  Here are some of my favourite photos from the last two years at Stonehill"

Hello to Naomi - We are lucky enough to welcome Naomi to the team as Fundraiser for Stonehill. Naomi says: "I'm so excited about the project and the potential for it, I can't wait to get going".  You will catch Naomi at the garden on some Wednesdays.

Supporting the garden - All support to the garden is appreciated, and that doesn't have to be always attending and gardening on Wednesdays.  Our produce is sold for donations from the garden on Wednesdays, we always welcome unwanted garden tools or plants and seeds, and if you can help spread the word about Stonehill, take a leaflet or like us on Facebook.  We are a Charity which relies on donations and grant funding to stay open, and any support is welcome.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Polytunnel update - Polytunnel number two has recently become a tropical forest garden, planted on one of our courses, incorporating plants such as Medlar, Quince and Almond trees, among others.  The planting will be interspersed with tropical annuals such as aubergines, tomatoes and chillies.  Please feel free to visit any Wednesday.

Support - There are many ways in which you can support us, both at the garden and away from it, get in touch if you would like to get involved.

Our produce is sold every Wednesday from the garden - we're there between 10am - 4pm.
